The Anthropocene and Learning to Be Guests

Event

Online

Presented by Yann Allard-Tremblay, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science, McGill University

The world faces catastrophic climate change and ecological ruin. Often, solutions are sought that reassert the modern logic of technological mastery over nature. In contrast, Indigenous ways of life ground our responsibilities in concrete relationships with humans and all other living things. By learning from Indigenous peoples, we can discover how to be guests of the land and we can envision a path away from the Anthropocene.

The proceeds from the lecture ($10 fee/person) will be directed to the SCS Indigenous Students Bursary fund.
